Electric, eclectic—an art portfolio by Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz frames up intimations of danger for an issue international across all three genres. Marilyn Hacker’s versions of Syria poet Golan Haji go side by side with new poems by Cynthia Zarin, John Kinsella, Dara Elerath, Chad Parmenter, and many others. In fiction, Jamie Quatro imagines lovers not taken, Tamas Dobozy proposes a hair-raising retrospective of a scandalous filmmaker’s career, and Elske Rahill gives us a woman whose urge to protect her daughter goes perilously far. Essays by Kim Adrian, Shahnaz Habib, Michael Sheehan, Radhiyah Ayobami, and others explore the legacies of trauma and the uncanny resourcefulness of the survival instinct.

Brian Morton’s “Tolstoy and God” has won a Pushcart Prize and will be reprinted in the 2017 anthology.
